Good cinematography, horrible script
4 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a Loggerhead Turtle, yet the narrator anthropomorphizes the motivations of the turtle and all other creatures over the course of the entire movie. As people, we have emotions like hate, jealousy, and revenge. Animals don't. In the movie, they describe a behavior of the turtle as "revenge" but actually the turtle is simply eating, and, as an animal, has no sense of revenge. Also, all predators are described as "bad." They play scary music when a predator is on screen, and use terminology that imply that being a predator is a bad thing, when actually Loggerheads can be rather predatory, yet they don't play the scary music then.

As the summary notes, the camera shots are very, very good. But they cannot help a horrible script. There are many much better movies about the ocean, and about sea turtles, and this one should be pretty low down on the list.
